    I have been experiencing the same problems as those described by the poster, but for the past week or two (since early/mid October 2008) mine go far beyond that.

    Not only do I have connection problems when first getting onto the EA Servers but once connected and I'm in the middle of a game I lose connections regularly.

    Yesterday (18 October 2008) I tried for nearly 12 hrs solid to get a few decent games played and in all that time I had about 8 complete games with lots more that were never completed.

    I've written to EA Online and complained but I think this could fall on deaf ears UNLESS they get a lot of other complaints with the same problems. So my recommendation to everyone suffering with connection problems relating to EA Online or EA Sports is to complain directly to them using their Contact Us link on the website.

    Don't ignore the problem cos without your complaints nothing will get sorted!

    I hope for all our sakes that the service will get better, and soon.

    All the very best to you all,

    Well everytime i connect to a server (no matter what type of game, clock, wireless or with cable) i can play max. ten minutes, and even less most of the time. It just says something like "connection to server lost, please check your connection". Wrote to EA once, few days after i got the game (which is when gold edition was launched in denmark) but still haven't gotten an answer. So i'm up for the idea of complaining or getting them to do something, or w/e as long as i can play a match without disconnecting -.-'

Check your firewall and your internet settings. since Bad company is a new game your firewall might block its connection.

Cannot log into battefield 4 multiplayer on ps4

This is most likely a server-side issue, which means there's not much to do but wait until it's fixed. If you want to make sure it's not a problem on your side though, then double check your internet coneection and settings. (The easy way to do this is make sure your still logged into the PSN, if you are then your internet is working fine.)

How to have infinite ammo on conflict global storm multyplayer???

There aren't any cheat "codes" to play in multiplayer. A trainer is a computer program that will allow you to cheat in multiplayer. You can find one easily by searching for"Global Storm" Trainer, but many trainers have nasty spyware built in, and there is no real way to tell which ones are safe.

Syncronizing games

It could be a slow internet connection, alot of pwople on the game server, or a video card that is not quite capable of keeping up in multiplayer mode. First try lowering your game settings to see if that cures the synching and lagging. If it does then you know it's a video card issue. If not then it is an isp issue. Hope this helps.

It says :"you have been disconnected from online servers"

There can be particular issues related
to playing through a router or firewall,
including sharing your internet
connection via another PC. In order to
join or host a Conflict: Global Storm
game from behind a firewall you must
open the following ports (inbound and

UDP ports 4658, 6500, 10010,
13139, 27900

TCP ports 4658, 6667, 28910,
29900, 29901, 29920

To host a game from behind a router
with NAT (Network Address
Translation), or a firewall, you will
need to enable ‘port forwarding’ on
the following ports to route data to the
IP address of your PC;

UDP ports 4658, 6500

TCP port 4658

If you continue to have problems
connecting to servers or creating
them, try bypassing your router or
firewall by connecting your PC directly
to your broadband connection.

Do not use ALT+TAB and do not enter Windows when multiplayer is running. It will kill the connection to GameSpy servers which are needed for connecting to any internet server.

Hi i have call of duty four on the ps3 anf it will not let me download the game settings when iam trying tom go on-line to find a game. Does anyone know how i can solve the issue. i have already been in...

you have lack of signal strength. I you are using a wireless router, try disconnecting it and using a wired connection. If not go to and run the test. If you are in the 256kbps range or higher then you have a hardware issue. another tip: when using online multiplayer back out and go to the main menu and then back to multiplayer.(this reconnects you to the server)

Cannot connect to cod 2 master server.


Are you running Vista 64? because COD2 doesn't work on multiplayer! Single player runs a treat, but multiplayer.........NOT INTERESTED!! :*(

I've tried it hundreds of times, i've searched forums, and even emailed the manufacturer, all replies have been this game is not compatible with Vista 64 :(

Sorry for the bad news if you're on 64 like me :(
